    my new zon pked!!

    hey guys this is my first post in the hardcore forum.....i thought that it would be nice to start a hardcore zon and play her untwinked just to see how far i could go....i mistakenly thought that a public game would be safe for very low lvl char just starting out...anyways i am up to lvl 10 and a sorc(lvl35++) pops into the game and hostiles my party....a few people tped back to town and a couple escaped but i thought really who would be so low as to try to pk someone so many lvls lower?
    does stuff like this go on all the time in hardcore or was this an aberration?

    Stuff like that used to go on all the time in HC.
    These days however you should consider yourself lucky you got a chance to TP back to town after being hostiled by that sorc...most of the time they'll just tppk instead.

    ok thx guys...i really didn't think that anyone would stoop so low...i mean we were in an act1lvl game and the sorc was so 25+ lvls higher than everyone...lesson learned

    I'd go with worst-case scenario when dealing with such situations. Honestly, Battle.Net is one big worst-case scenario.

    Trust no one superdave. All high lvls in your game are out to pk/tppk you, unless proven otherwise.

    (Except ppl on these forums!)

    ... which can be seperated into two further categories:

    (1) Those who would never think of killing you.
    (2) Those who would never think of not killing you. :teeth:

    lol...actually its not bad....you do get a sick feeling in your stomach when your character dies but it quickly goes away when you pick up you body and voila everythings good again...no do-overs in hardcore....i really didn't think anyone would waste their time picking off such easy targets...i guess i could equate this to me taking one of my lvl90+ zons back the nm act1 and popping a carver or two...what's the point?

    I think the people pking the the low levels are insecure about their character and scared that they might loose to OMG someone their own level! So they pk someone they know they have no chance of dying against. That's why I respect so many pkers/duelers here. The majority of them not only fight/pk people their own level but also characters much, much higher level than they are. :thumbsup:

    Edit: And I wasn't being sarcastic when I said that SC must be nice. Before I unofficially 'quit', I played SC with a friend of mine. It was very nice being able to Baal without having to worry about being tppkd.

    or perhaps their low lvl chars have been pked and they are out for "revenge"...sort of a viscious circle of abuse?

    btw i didn't read any sarcasm in your comment.

    I thought you did because of this:

    But oh well.

    One thing I couldn't stand when I tried SC was that every Baal game I went into was tele'd by a bot. :mad:

    yes there are guys that follow the bots in baal runs for hours...people become quite irate when someone pops into the wp right after the bot and murders it while it is bo'ing with cta...that's about the only time that i ever see pking (or should i say bking?) in sc

    This thread almost makes me miss playing D2. If you ever want to see pointless pk'ing by people of a much,much higher level, come play Mu with me. At least in D2 pk'ing (legit pk'ing) takes some skill and luck, although tppk is about as lame as it gets. And FYI when ver 1.10 came out I had a lvl 9 necro,and a level 15 necro get smoked by a tppking lvl 8x sorc, so yeah this is pretty standard.

    You can always join KTA's next session, starting in about 3 weeks.

    From zero to guardian untwinked. The only danger are your own mistakes.
